See, this is why we need more women talking out in tech.
We’re just sitting here talking about how we’d like women in technology to be more visible, and ways that we can make this happen and suddenly Dave Winer, Ben Barren and Richard McManus are organising not just one but *two* more conferences!
Just what the world needs. :)
Seriously, whilst I think it would be great to have a web2/blogher doubleheader conference in Australia (it would be great to not travel a million miles to see someone as ‘famous’ as Dave speak) and I would love the opportunity to see and meet more chicks who blog, particularly those who blog about web2, let’s not get distracted.
Fact is, we don’t know where most of these women are and they’re probably not going to write a proposal to speak at your conference. And *that* is the nub of the problem.
Get down here to my earlier post and join in the discussion.
For those of you who nick over to Ben’s blog to read his post (and yes, I agree, Sophie you definitely need a blog). Check out this intriguing phrase in context and let me know what you think it means:
the potential ovatory auditionary experience
I’m not sure even Ben know’s exactly what it means, but I find it as disturbing (conceptually) as it is beautiful (linguistically).
